Rumours around West Ham signing Moussa Morega from Portugal ses to have had a great last 2 seasons with 2 goals every 3 games got to say that'll do for me

And if Arnie has put in a txfer request let him go he's become too much of a diva and will just P""" us all off.


1.) 02 Jul 2019 19:26:52
Agreed start fresh and go for time Warner. And marega is at least hungry and can score goals.

2.) 02 Jul 2019 20:22:48
Let’s face it!
Arnautovic has been poor, he has had a good couple of months when moyes put him upfront, apart from that done naff all! All West Ham fans want is someone giving it 100%, that’s not arnie. Take the 22mil and good riddance, time to start learning from the payets and Arnautovics is that these players have form for this behaviour and all clubs should leave well alone.

3.) 02 Jul 2019 20:49:42
Marega would do well I think, prefer him to Gomez big powerful and mobile looks made for PL.

4.) 02 Jul 2019 22:58:00
His brother makes me laugh saying West Ham are treating him like a commodity. He has less brains than Marko. Hello kn*bhead! He has a contract and we decide what price we sell him for. He was happy to use West Ham as a stepping stone to get out of Stoke. I guess when it’s convenient for them to use West Ham for more money (ie. his new £100,000 a week contract) it’s OK but when we want more money for him he takes offence. Arrogant and stupid at the same time. Let him go. he’s not all that. Let him go and become an absolute nobody in China and end his career like it deserves to be ended. Badly! I’ll have Rondon all day long over Arnie. Less goals perhaps but better attitude. 😡😡😡😡😡.

5.) 03 Jul 2019 00:41:59
He scored the same amount 11 last year in a mediocre Newcastle side I think he could do a good job for us.

6.) 03 Jul 2019 01:13:34
Less goals? How many goals did Arnie score in the second half of the season? Let him go.

7.) 03 Jul 2019 06:26:33
I think most WH fans agree Arnie must go. Bad influence, bad attatude, disruptive, sulks and what's more he wants to leave. We don't need players like him at WH.

8.) 03 Jul 2019 11:26:56
You’re all absolutely right. Let me go. Look what happened to Payet when he left. He slipped into obscurity and has become little more than an average performer.
If MP believes in Rondon then so should we. He played for him at Malaga and potentially fits into how amp wants us to play the game. And he’s not going to cost a fortune.
Greedy I know, but I’m hoping for Rondon, Marega and Gómez. 😂😂😂😂.

9.) 03 Jul 2019 11:45:47
Arnie and his brother are everything wrong with the modern game in one package, wouldn't let him hold us over a barrel like Payet did though. I would sell for any offers over 25 million.

10.) 03 Jul 2019 19:04:38
Rondon gomez marega all powerful and strong ideal for bruising nature of premier league. I'd take any two of them.

11.) 03 Jul 2019 21:11:28
I see Marega is getting some bad press from some West Ham fans. They are saying he hadn’t proven himself. In my option 22 goals in a season and 6 goals and 2 assists in the Champions league trumps anything we have or have had in last 10 years. I would take him all day long. Power and pace. We also raised our eyebrows when we brought in Demba Ba and he did some great things for us, and in my opinion was VERY similar to Marega.

12.) 04 Jul 2019 18:57:18
A committed MAREGA or money grabber ARNAUTOVIC it's a no brainer. COYI.



19 May 2019 14:25:42
I see West ham were placed 3rd in the average attendance figure for this Season following Man Utd and Arsenal.

I do wish they would stop calling it Attendance as we all know its based on ticket Sales including Season Ticket holders who don't show up

What do you guys think?


1.) 19 May 2019 20:29:06
All teams do it not just us, no idea why as with modern electronic turnstiles they can tell exactly how many attend.

2.) 20 May 2019 12:33:34
Season ticvket sales are seats bought and paid for, might be naff but thems the rules.

3.) 27 May 2019 10:17:28
The stadium would fail on health and safety if we did not know how many are in the ground. Real attendance is easy to do.



04 Mar 2019 12:01:51
Great effort by the club on Saturday with the christening of the Billy Bonds stand I got choked watching Billy het choked with the emotion of you know what I mean.

Great to see so many ex players turn up as well and what a cheer for Ludo the loudest of the lot after Billy of course

799 appearances - would love to think Rice might beat record - well I can dream can't I?


1.) 05 Mar 2019 09:10:09
Hi Mercerl

Agreed everything you said including you can dream bit :)

If young Dec stayed at the club for the rest of his career and say he played an average of 32 Prem games a season ( that's a push with injury and suspension) and a average of 6 FA and League Cup combined, that would total 38 games per season, if you wanted to throw for argument sake a extra 5 for Europe in the future at a max he plays 44 games a season, ( That is far to many on average but let's just say)

He would need to play at the club for around 18 seasons taking him up to 38 to hit even 792 games, the above figures are really pushing it so it would be a case he needs to play until his 40 plus minimum.

Its not going to happen, and i'm so bored at work I just thought i'd mention it :)

2.) 05 Mar 2019 11:43:48
Well done Warrington amazing isn't it Billy achieved the 799 when he was 40 having had a complete season out - now get with your work before the boss turns up lol.



18 Feb 2019 16:47:19
Seen reports today WHU interested in possibly signing Anthonio Valencia if Zab decides retire been a great player for Manc Utd but he's nearly as old as Zab

What do you guys think.


1.) 18 Feb 2019 18:18:11
No thanks.

We do not need to invest silly wages on very short term, diminishing players.

2.) 18 Feb 2019 18:18:39
No thanks👎👎.

3.) 19 Feb 2019 02:55:52
At this time there’s nothing of substance to make comment on IRONMIKE.

4.) 19 Feb 2019 15:48:54
There's nothing wrong with having experienced players in the squad (Zaba has been brilliant)

Fredericks doesn't look like he is 100% up to PL standard yet but I think he'll get there

So an experienced option seems like a decent plan when we don't need to splash a lot of cash on a player in that position.



20 Jan 2019 21:58:03
Looking at the various re runs of yesterday's game and in particular the first goal some observation

1 Diop did really well to get back and put the block in unlucky it rebounded straight to Wilson
2 wilsons shot was outstanding
3 Ogbonna turned his back on the shot poor attitude can't imagine that Ginge or even Reed would have done that

Conclusion we need Balbuenna or even Reed back ASAP and we probably need to sign Wilson to stop him scoring against us in future.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 08:50:10
It was undeniably a great strike, but I don’t think Wilson is the answer for us.

Gomez for me please and the buzz is we’ve upped our interest in him.

I’m always disappointed and frustrated if we lose a game we should be more competitive in, but we have to remember that we have a ludicrous injury list.

If our entire squad was fully fit, how many of Saturday’s starters wouldn’t have made the team?

2.) 21 Jan 2019 10:33:34
About right Markro, that team was no where near our best.
I have wondered for a few years if maybe our training ground is to blame for all the injuries?

Well done to whoever negotiated the deal for Haller

Jasonb who are you Bideford Warrington iron Al Chelmsford Mrs May Jezza Cprnyn and even Iron Mike if you're still alive this has got to be the best signing since Dean Ashton

I'm getting very excited for the coming season.


1.) 16 Jul 2019 14:55:58
☝️And I didn’t even get a mention - 😥.

2.) 16 Jul 2019 15:35:48
Sorry Matkro how could I forget you and everyone else on here Even ed002 lol.

3.) 16 Jul 2019 15:57:05
It's looking good mercerl :)

4.) 16 Jul 2019 19:03:04
Mercer, thanks for the mention, poor old Markro felt left out😂🤣 I know nothing about Haller so rely on opinions of all the posters on here, but they are all unanimous in there comments on him, so can only hope he lives up to expectations but his stats look really good. I make no comments on suspect signings as we are linked with so many and a lot are pipe dreams! Can’t wait for the season to start, so bloody boring without the Premiership. Just hope they all stay clear of pre season injuries? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

5.) 16 Jul 2019 19:38:47
Now you all no that I don't get very carried away at transfer carnival time, but allowing myself a rare moment of optimism, if this gos through could this be the ratest of all things, a 20 goal a season wesf ham striker But like a lot of us I do t know enough about the player .

6.) 16 Jul 2019 20:10:44
The suspense is driving me crazy now!

7.) 16 Jul 2019 20:21:04
I know YouTube videos are always “the very best of, ” but it’s worth looking at Haller’s for last season. The boy can play.

8.) 16 Jul 2019 20:28:29
I think your being a bit optimistic MERCERL regarding the HALLER deal as rumour has it 2 clubs are trying to hijack the move rumour has it the 1st club is INTER MILAN although I'm pretty sure LUKAKU is the 1st choice unless they are looking at signing 2 strikers what's the latest please ED any further news. COYI.



11 Jul 2019 08:29:04
Watched a couple of videos of Seb Haller and have to say I'm impressed Stats are interesting he's a 1 in 2 goals per game striker and wins more than 50% of challenges. He's also been involved in more challenges than any other Bundedleague player and last season was involved in over half of Frankfurt goals

Reminds me of an Andy Carroll when he was at his best only Hallers on steroids Speaks really good English he would fit right in at West Ham.


1.) 11 Jul 2019 11:12:54
Scores with both feet, good in the air, reasonable pace, really quick brain for assists. I’d take him in a heartbeat.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 11:44:02
Not going to happen.

3.) 11 Jul 2019 22:28:18
It won't happen but he's better than GOMEZ. COYI.

4.) 13 Jul 2019 00:17:58
Hiya mercerl the bottoman part of your post really concerns me you said reminds me of Andy Carroll at his best and secondly he speaks English so basically we are paying for a good fisherman who speaks English is that all you get for €40 million nowadays. COYI.



18 Jun 2019 10:12:45
I see Josh Pack has signed for Coventry on a free wish him all the best sorry he didn't make it with us I thought he had a lot of promise.




14 Jun 2019 12:57:38
Great signing and so nice for a change to spring it on us with little or no warning welcome to the East End Pablo

Meanwhile a great welcome back home to Kevin Keen.




13 Jun 2019 09:35:50
Just watched clips of Fornals on Claret and Hugh as I knew nothing about him at all.

Very good ball control an seems to find team mates with some great passes can see a good spine with Rice and Anthonio if He is playing in attack.

I know it's only clips but think I'd be very happy to see him in Claret and blue.

Having looked at the stats over the last few weeks it would be Seb Haller and Moisa Marega for me Haller played outstanding last 2 seasons at Frankfurt as part of an attacking 3 and Marega has an outstanding return per game would remind me of a Hartson and Kitspn partnership

Not so excited about Rondon but he does have Premier experience - all 3 would be amazing.

We might as we have kept Perez he actually scored almost as many goals as chocaritto and was only on the pitch half as long.

There was a lot of talk about Trippier joining us a few years back before he became a regular first team spud I seem to remember he being seen in a few hostelleries with a few of our lads.

I agree with you Steve I posted a while ago that I would have liked to have kept Perez for off the bench appearances he didn't do that badly when he did that last season.

I'd add Balbuenna and Frederick's to that list and wouldn't mind too much if Snoddy went because I think he's going to be a bench player this season.

Stevie I'm with you the so called big 6 have got to learn that a contract is a contract and that they can't just buy their way into a Champions league place

I've often thought that a big percentage of a teams squad should come from the academy but then if that was the case we probably wouldn't have Diop iin rhe first place.

Agree with you Al and also the lad Dju has some promise too

Assuming Arnie amd Anthonio stay next season it would be good to see both of them coming on as Subs.
